Before one of my closest friends (who currently lives in Atlanta) moved back to Florida this month we wanted to get together for some Chattanooga Summer fun! Chattanooga has always been the perfect family-friendly meet up location for us since it is just about two hours from both Nashville and Atlanta. Of course, it doesn’t hurt that they have great …
